How Wriggles & Giggles help develop your child's fine and gross motor skills

Play is crucial to the development of children's gross and fine motor skills. Through play, children practice and perfect control and coordination of large body movements, as well as small movements of hands and fingers.

Wriggles & Giggles activities can support young children's motor development we offer play activities that provide children with regular opportunities to move their bodies.

At Wriggles and Giggles Sessions we repeat activities that will help with all stages of development from birth to 5 years We also help with ideas to take home and parenting tips and techniques. To join a group in Yarm, Darlington, Hartburn, Ingleby Barwick, Newton Aycliffe send us an email
